What action may be taken when an investigating fhp officer takes possession of a dui suspect blood sample then loses it?
The blood sample and hospital lab results were taken from the hospital by the lead officer then later reported as unsuccessful blood draw. After our own investigation we found the original blood worksheet filled out by the officer and signed. FHP reported the blood awaiting testing for more than a year then stated it was never retrieved from the hospital. The hospital will not respond to my questions. FHP will not respond to my calls. The drunk driver went from 5 years for nearly killing my still severely disabled wife to a $500 fine and misd dui. We were cheated of justice and criminal restitution. We wish to sue the FHP. What type of lawyer do we need and what type of liability does the FHP have?
You need a civil rights attorney, but I'm not sure the FHP's negligence is not protected by governmental immunity....
How can I seal or expunge my records prohibiting 3rd parties from profiting from my demise?
My photo is all over the web. It's my only DUI. Other individuals have escaped this public smearing which makes it all the more harder for a mother of a 3 1/2 yr old to get her life back. People did not have to deal with this years ago. Not that it's ok to drive drunk but I want to be a productive person in society. What can I do? I have been forthright with my current employers but obviously it tarnishes my reputation and I have a young daughter to provide for. How can I fix this? I reside in Okaloosa Co. Florida. Thank you.
First, if you were convicted, you can't seal or expunge your record. Second, even if you're eligible, that doesn't...

What should I do about my roomates leaving the scene with bodily harm case?
A couple of months ago my roomate was involved in a hit and run where he hit a pedestrian. Using some not so choice words I convinced him to hire an attorney and surrender himself, which he did, and is now facing a third degree felony charge. My dilemma is this, I know that he was drinking that night because we parted ways at a bar, and this has not been brought up in the case. It concerns me because he still regularly drinks and drives and it would be horrible for something like this to happen again. His case has been continued for another month. Should I approach the prosecutor with this information? Or law enforcement? Anytime I approach him about this I am greeted with denial and hostility, it is my belief that facing a real punishment may be all that can break this cycle.
It is doubtful your information would have any affect on his case as your word is the only evidence of alcohol being a...
I didn't complete my DUI school 30 days prior to getting off probation, got notice to appear, but completed school since then.
I was supposed to have DUI school done 30 days prior to getting off probation, I had to wait two weeks to get into the class so my probation officer gave me a notice to appear just in case I didn't get the class and treatment done. I have documentation, certificates of completion for both DUI school and the treatment to show the judge. My court date is on the day in supposed to get off probation.. What's the worst that could happen?
If you have completed all the requirements of your probation, then I do not see any potential problems. Make sure that...
Why would a florida probation officer put a boot on a car?
My sons mother is on probation for a DUI in Florida. She has been on probation now for several months now and she is telling me that she is about to have a boot put on her car for 10 days by her probation officer. She says it's protocol and that everyone has it done. It seems like she would have had to violate her probation. Is it protocol or did she violate?
Perhaps she has threatened to drive while she is not supposed to? Perhaps she has already violated her probation?...
